New special issue on Nanotoxicology with special emphasis on Oxidative stress, inflammation and Genotoxicity Research and development of nanomaterials (NMs) has resulted in the need to understand particle toxicology beyond classical anthropogenic exposures such as mineral dusts, fibers and combustion particles. The challenge is to develop testing strategies that are applicable for routine high throughput screening of NMs, while also stimulating research on mechanisms of action of specific engineered NMs. This Special Issue of Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis focuses on the inflammatory, oxidative stress and genotoxic properties of nanomaterials, the interplay between these and the correlation between physicochemical properties and hazardous effects. The articles of this Issue provide a critical assessment of currently used methods, review of current knowledge on selected nanomaterials and original reports on the hazardous effects of synthetic amorphous silica, carbon nanotubes, nanocellulose, biodiesel and titanium dioxides.
